spoke parmelee about the time he spends with his daughters, reaction to that hateful n.r.a. ad may have shown how warmly the country has adopted them. chris: i'm chris matthews welcome to the show. with us joe klein from "time" magazine, the bbc's katty kay, nia-malika henderson henderson and david leonhardt. the president addresses the country and he will try to project his will that would block his legacy. opposition to barack obama in some quarters is searing. hear how sean hannity greeted the obama victory in november -- >> america wanted barack obama for four more years, and now we have him. by the way, good luck with that. chris: that was a bit sarcastic. today as the president take the oath, the new nbc wall street poll traces a geographic divide. 60% of americans who live in cities say they like the president personally, and like his policies. in the suburbs 43% like him and his policies. but in rural areas it's just 27%. and that's what you see playing out in congress. also inside the poll 6-10 strong republicans dislike the president personally as well as his policies. joe, th
to identify the n.r.a. as the far right and to separate them. nerpped, the right is more out of step than he is -- in other words, the right is more out of step than he is. >> if you look at public opinion broadly, it seems there's been a shift in the country. thrls been a 10% shift to the right amongst the republican party. so you have seen, it's true, a republican party that has shifted to the right. barack obama has managed through issues like gun control and the right through organizations like the n.r.a. to paint them as out of step with the mainstream of america more successfully than the right has managed to depict the president as being out of step with the mainstream of america. chris: i want to ask you about the cover of a magazine, has the country moved more towards the gun control position or not because of the horror at newtown? >> i think they've moved some to that position. the n.r.a. still has a stranglehold, but the president can use the extremism of the n.r.a., who are acting like a bunch of crazies that's days to help sell the rest of his agenda. chris: this is too far out
of the nra and they are joined by tens of millions much supporters throughout the country. it's on behalf of those millions of decent hard working law-abiding citizens that i'm here today to give voice to their concerns. the title of today's hearings is what should america do about gun violence? we believe the answer to that question is to be honest about what works and honest about what doesn't work. teaching safe and responsible gun ownership works and nra has a long and proud history of doing exactly that. our child safety program told 25 million young children if they see a gun they should do four things, stop, don't touch it, leave the area and call an adult. as a result of this and other private sector programs, fatal firearms accidents are at the lowest level in 100 years. the nra has over 80,000 certified instructors who teach our military personnel and law enforcement officers and hundreds and thousands of other men and women how to savely use firearms. we do more and spend more than anyone else on teaching safe and responsible gun ownership. we join the nation in sorrow over the

news talks about how the nra has put out a new app that allows young children and everybody ages 4 and up, to use assault weapons on an iphone app. at an early age, i guess. >> someone sent me the apps available on iphones and other phones. >> how sick is this? how sick are these people running a great organization, proud organization? how sick are these people that have commandeered the nra and turned them into an extremist operation for survivalist and gun manufacturers? how many million s s of dollars have people made over the slaul slaughter of innocents, now they're doing this. >> at the top of the house, nra does not represent gun owners. they represent manufacturers and money. >> there you go. >> they don't represent million s of americans that want to defend themselves. harold, you're from tennessee, an nra supporter. l let's talk about people in the northeast that don't understand what nra has been, what a great organization it has been through the years. how the organization has not always been the organization it became in the mid-1990s. could you explain gun owners and

with the nra and will sit down with some people in the entertainment industry this evening. interestingly, the vice president isn't even sure if their proposals will do anything to solve the actual problem. >> if you look at the tragic events that garner aid tension hard to pinpoint what you could have done to ensure it would haven't happened. >> andrea: okay. i know that d.c. likes to look like they are always doing something, but eric, if he doesn't sure what he is doing will result in something successful, why are they racing to do it? >> eric: they have to do it. they have to sit down with the nra and others on the right. it's interesting what they're doing with the retail outlet, wal-mart, dick's sporting good and bass pro shops and the other ones. they will go after this to say here is a great opportunity to you guys, we'll give it to you to do the background check and give it to you to sell things we don't want sold at gun shows. they think they will bring the business to them. get those groups on board. if you have wal-mart and bass pro shoppous have a conservative shopper there.
the nra and representatives from the entertainment industry this evening. kathleen sebelius wills attend some of the meetings. it is a big step for president obama's new gun violence task force launched in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. but it did not necessarily leave many with high expectations. businesses that sell a lot of guns like walmart will also be in on some meetings. those groups are more likely to be influenced by the nra since they're making a big profit off those firearms. and they do not want to appear too entrenched in the white house's anti-gun push. >>> walmart says after the shooting, guns are now one of their highest-selling items. while it does want to help the administration, when that starts to contradict with sales that's where the help stops. the nra obviously has a lot of money and therefore a lot of power going into these talks but gabby giffords' new anti-gun group is looking to counteract that. she and her husband mark kelly kick started a campaign this week that they're calling common sense measures to curb gun violence. now, they're hopi
and -- chris: background checks? >> full background checks. the n.r.a. is going to be too smart by half here. they're going to totally oppose any kind of gun restrictions. and what they're going to end up with is the kind of background -- full background check scheme that the tea party types and the n.r.a. really don't like but what's really necessary. chris: let's talk about the n.r.a. this week they were very rejectionist and said get out of here and we're not doing anything. where are they going to end up? >> as howard was just saying on the background checks, one of the things that makes that particular issue different is that you have a lot of industry onboard. so people who sell guns, a company like wal-mart, they benefit if background checks are being applied to the loophole gun sales that currently are actually stealing their business. so areas where the n.r.a. can find common ground with business and common ground with the white house is where you will see the most action. chris: when it's all done and the dust settles what will the american people do through their congress to get s
of pressures especially when you consider the influence of the nra. >> okay, kelly o'donnell, thanks very much. >>> with us now is former pennsylvania congressman and three-star admiral joe sestak. very hard to get big, sweeping gun reform passed and there's very little that the president can do by way of executive authority that, you know, is big. for example, the assault weapons ban or banning any kind of weapons, banning high-capacity magazines, all of these things are congressional approval and what little he can do sort of strengthening the tracking devices, you know, tracking of weapons and trafficking of weapons, mental health checks, those are things that he could do without congress but obviously don't have the teeth that a lot of gun control advocates looking for. when he gets this proposal today and looks it over, is he hoping, do you think, to see some of these big, big ticket items in it and knows it's politically difficult or hoping to see sort of the lower end things and actually maybe put some of those in to implementation? >> you know, s.e. depends upon what the president want
insight into that fascinating meeting today at the white house between vice president biden and the nra. what can the vice president, what can the white house reasonably expect to get out of the nra today? >> the nra is going to go in there with a conciliatory face. they're being smart. they're sending not their top lobbyist but an official who has worked with biden over the years, worked with him in the '90s in the senate, is actually friends with him from the delaware beach, jim baker, the nra's number two, but he's coming with a very hard message. the nra told me that in the past 18 days, their paid memberships have gone up 100,000. they've gone from 4.1 million to 4.2 million. and they tell me that before this debate is over, they want to get to 5 million. so the nra sees this fight as a growth opportunity. willie, it's $25 a year, you get a free camo duffel bag with that. and we're told that jim baker, the nra lobbyist, is going to tell vice president biden we're willing to discuss, talk to you about any possible constructive solution, but here's the kicker, we listen to people bey

coming from the right is any indication, the president has a major fight on his hands. the nra has labeled him an elitist hypocrite and called out his daughters who receive secret service protection. yesterday senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house s

the violence. >>> as for yesterday's meeting with the nra that, one didn't go so well. yesterday's talks had nothing to do with keeping our children safe and was more about demonizing the second amendment. the nra statement says the group will "not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and mad men." we know gun sales often skyrocket after mass shootings usually because buyers are afraid of the government imposing stricter gun regulations. we are seeing that in the wake of newtown connecticut. one thing we're also seeing is a big showing from anti-gun groups. in just the last month alone more than 400,000 new members have joined mayors against illegal guns, that's a group started by new york city mayor michael bloomberg and nearly one million people have signed the demand a plan petition calling on obama and congress to outline a course of action to end gun violence. more "bill press show" is up live after the break. stay with us. right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to
